The Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership degree (“The LEAD Program”) is designed to equip students with the competencies necessary to serve as effective ministry leaders in churches, parachurch organizations and denominational entities. The LEAD program focuses the development of knowledge and competencies in three basic ministry results areas: Leadership, Education and Discipleship.
Formats of Study
Designed to equip students with some ministry experience, students may take coursework in a variety of delivery formats and locations. Twenty-four hours of study must be taken on campus. That requirement may be accomplished either in the traditional classroom-based format or through an alternative, blended-learning model that requires a combination of online and face-to-face learning experiences.
Admission to this program is limited to persons holding a Bachelor’s degree or its equivalent who also meet all other admission requirements for the Seminary.
Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership students must complete 24 semester hours of core studies, 15 semester hours of prescribed Ministry Studies Area courses, and 9 hours of Track Selectives from courses with the BCO, CED, EVA, MIS, or PMN prefix or any approved course in a ministry certificate, for a total of 48 semester hours of credit with an overall GPA of 2.0 or better.
